**Congruence**(symbol:

*â‰…*) is the state achieved by coming together, the state of agreement. The Latin meaning â€œI meet together, I agreeâ€. As an abstract term, congruence means similarity between objects. Congruence, as opposed to approximation, is a relation which implies a species of equivalence.
